CoolMath – an old, familiar math website has recently launnched a set of virtual manipulatives including a nice interface for base-ten blocks. Becuase they are just rolling this content out now, the number of manipulatives is limited to the base ten blocks, a numberline, patterrn blocks and ten frames. However, CoolMath has been a resource for teachers for many years now, and we can likely expect the virtual manipulative resources to continue to grow!
As many of us have discussed, there is genuine growth occurring in the creation of online resources that are accessible from a Chromebook. Today I am excited to bring your attention to the Didax library of free online math manipulatives!
This set of tools includes unifix cubes, number lines, rekenreks, base ten blocks, prime factor tiles, algebra tiles and more!
